Formerly with CNN, Ed Henry, now with FAUX says there is no conservative bias
Edited on Tue Sep-13-11 04:46 PM by Sheepshank
Really?...no conservative bias at FOX? Is this the new reality they are trying to portray?

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/ed-henry-says-peopl...

In a Q&A with Adweek this week, Henry dismissed the notion that Fox News has a conservative bias.

"I know what people say about Fox and about what they say is a tilt to the right," Henry said. "Meanwhile, the reporters I know, like Bret Baier, are right down the middle and are tough on everybody."

of the herd.

7. "tough on everybody"

There is a difference between an absence of bias and an absence of judgment.

If a news story involves a crazed murderer who stabs a baby to death, I suppose he first interviews the murderer with questions like "How could you do such a thing?" and then interviews the mother with questions like "Isn't it your fault for taking your baby out in public?"

That's may be unbiased, but it is also stupid.

11. CNN will be better without the guy
I can't think of anything he did to enhance CNN news coverage. Very forgettable reports this dude did.

Fox can have him.

13. Well, he's kinda right....
Fox has helped push the middle rightward. So people now think far-right ideas are mainstream. So he's kinda sorta right: but he's also complicit, along with Fox, in moving the goalposts.
